Current Lust: colored jeans

Jeans have been around from as far as i can remember, and even as a kid, i was already strapped into these really cool over all jeans, or at least that’s what my mom thought at the time. With the jeans trend having evolved into the 21st century, it is really no surprise that it had to kick up some tricks up its sleeves to make denim trend one of the strongest survivors in the history of fashion.

And with that said, out came the colored jeans!!! Yep, i kid you not and it comes in any color you can imagine. Be it red, orange, yellow, purple, hot pink, cobalt blue, deep colors, neon, or even pastel colors.

I currently have a pair of cobalt blue and green jeans that i love to wear when i get sick and bored of my normal blue denim jeans. I reckon this must be the easiest and laziest yet fabulous way to put a bit of color into an outfit.

What colored jeans are you lusting for right now???

Trend Alert: Denim shirt

This is a trend that i see every now and then but it’s a look that i definitely adore! It looks casual but still oozes style to it. I especially love the Chloe F/W 2010 collection, where the denim is mixed with the camel brown color. The contrast gives it a feminine and casual look. This is look that i’ll be trying out for sure.

Denim overload…

I was just going through my closet the other day and realized how many pair of jeans i own! I think it was like 15 or so? Well, that’s alot of jeans in my dictionary anyway. It was interesting to see how my jeans style has transitioned over the years too, where dark blue boot cut and flared jeans were all i owned.  I still adore them and i know i can always rely on these classic pieces but skinny jeans are just my fashion staple as of lately, ehh…ok fine, for the past 3 years:P Yes, they’re tight and makes it hard to breath but who cares? lol.

With the trends always changing and abundant choices of jeans out there, i can see how tough it is to decide on what to buy or not buy. Dark colored skinny jean is definitely my comfort zone but i think i can start considering these other denim beauties too. Never say never right? hehe. So ranking in no particular order, i present you some lovely denim jeans and see how they can create different styles.  

Skinny jeans

To create a casual and chic look, just slip on a simple black top over your skinny jeans. For a more glam look, option for a faux fur coat and pair it with a classic designer bag for a simple yet stylish look.

Boot Cut Jeans

The classic boot cut jeans are here to say no matter what season or trend. You can tone down the look like by wearing a crisp blouse to create that casual and chic look. Or why not wear a tight fitted top with some slim boot cut jeans to give it a cleaner look?

  Wide leg jeans

The wide leg jeans are definitely catered for the taller ladies as it’s a better fit for them and won’t overwhelm their body shape. It also helps to elongate those envious tall legs that they have.
Long Flared Jeans

This is another iconic piece in the jeans family where it’s always timeless and versatile. You can instantly add that feminine touch and few inches in height to by wearing wedges with these jeans.
 
Ankle Cut Jeans

Ankle cut jeans are great choices if you want to accentuate on those killer heels and make a statement.
 
Colored Jeans

Colored jeans are more of a fun alternative in my opinion, becaue of all the vibrant colors you get to play with! You can bring out the the colored jeans during summer and pair it with a colorful top and some wedges. it’s the perfect way to go for that summer girl fun look. Or play it simple, pair your colored jeans with a plain tee or tuck it in some booties for that wintery transformation.
Ripped Jeans

The ripped jeans really gives that rock chic look to it. It’s a great style to go for if you want to look fashionable but with some bad girl attitude.
 
High Waisted Jeans

These beauties add instant curves with the magie of their high waist style.  You can pair it with some pumps to give that extra slimming effect to the outfit too. That sounds like a superb idea to me!
 
Denim shorts

Denim shorts or faded cutoffs are the greatest fashion staples as they have dual function – comfort and style. You can still look trendy by pairing it with a cropped top or a casual blazer.
Overalls Jeans

I am not a big fan of the overalls jean look as this style takes me back to my geeky days as a kid. However, pair it with a simple tee or a cropped top/corset, and you will go from that geeky kid in overalls into a sexy lady with those alluring bare legs in her overalls.
Boyfriend Jeans

Last but not least, we have our masculine boyfriend jeans. They look best when rolled up and paired with ankle boots so it still has a girlie touch to it. Flip flops are also doable for those “running errands” day like Reese who picks up her kids from school in style.

What jeans will you be sporting this year?;)

What’s your street style?

I must admit, there’s something about looking at what people are wearing when i’m on the streets, and its like my eyes just automatically scan from head to toe, lol. Who knows, it could be an addiction of mine because i seriously do it all the time!!!  I saw some great street styles on The Sartorialist blog by Scott Schuman, who by the way takes amazing photos of natural fashion beauty:) I’m sure alot of fashionistas out there will have come across his blog right? If you have been hiding in a cave for the past years and haven’t heard of him, then i urge you to check out his blog….like right about NOW!

Anyways, here are a few picks that i really like and especially the full on denim lady with a cute and innocent smile.  The lady dressed in different tones of beige makes it look so simple and stylish, a look that looks like you didn’t have to put much into it. I actually think dressing to look or feel good is a skill because i’ve seen some hideous people dressed in all the wrong ways you can think of! Last but not least, i love how the Asian woman uses a scarf to make a headband ribbon to accesorise her hair. Quite functional piece of garment won’t you say? hehehe
